Cancervive recently hosted its 7th annual Cancervive Awareness Ride where more than 60 cancer survivors, supporters, media and crew took the open road across Gauteng, the Eastern Free State and the Northern Cape with the aim to empower and educate people fighting against cancer.

With sponsors like SPAR, Revlon, Triumph, Mercedes-Benz, and SABC; the 10-day motorbike ride stretched over 2 300 kilometers and broadcasted across South Africa.

This internationally acclaimed initiative is survivor-driven, and a project of the umbrella organization of People Living with Cancer and is one of the most effective cancer awareness and educational campaigns in the world.

This project commenced in 2011, reaches more than 190 000 people across South Africa in seven languages, nine provinces and over a span of 16 000 kilometers!

This project saves a lot of lives by not only raising awareness about cancer but also R160 000 in publicity generated funds.

The focus lies mainly in rural areas where information is not readily available. The aim is to empower patients by making them realize they are not alone in the struggle to conquer cancer. This is done through music, performing arts, dancing, and storytelling at places like schools, hospitals, factories, communities and more.

Shy Cancers are addressed, and education is provided for early detection, prevention methods, and associated risk factors.

Join in and help raise awareness by spreading the word about the disease and that it can be beaten!
